2.0 out of 5 stars Shallow and outdated post 9-11, April 3 2004
This work provides a general understanding of the drivers behind globalization, but Friedman often leaves concepts in mid-air without closure. And for that reason much of the book seems like speculation or 'best guess as to why' Q&A.
Friedman's admiration for Enron will make you giggle and the little attention he gives to terrorism as a backlash to globalization weakens the entire work.
Perhaps so much has changed since 9/11/01, its outdated that quickly.
I would recommend it for high school students as an intro to the topic.
